People can you hear this
People can you hear each other
They want to make us soldiers
They want us to unnerve each other
Yeah

'Cause we speak in different dialects
They want us to forsake our sister
Their fashionable language
They want us all to fear our brother

Oh the tie that binds must be stronger than what our differences allow
Seek the good in a passing wave, that is evolution, yeah

So people can you hear this
People can you hold each other
Can it be we're getting nearer
Don't let the cynics be your only cover now

The tie that binds must be stronger than what our differences allow
See the good in a passing wave, that is evolution, yeah

Ay ay ay
We'll surprise them all

'Cause I got the oil can
You got the stove pipe
He got the key stone
She got the block
But with a bit of mortar
We'll make a fine house
We wont look for the one shoe dropped

But here come the board man
He come to shut us down
We'll take the long way
The long way around
And we'll gather our wood on the wrong side of town
And we'll surprise them all, surprise them
We'll surprise them, we'll surprise them all

So people can you hear this
People don't you hurt each other
They want to make us soldiers
The innocent to know the suffer now
The tie that binds must be strong, must be strong
See the good in the passing wave, that is evolution

Ay ay ay
We'll surprise them
Ay ay ay
We'll surprise them all
We'll surprise them all

    General CommentAntiwar song obviously. It is saying that people should not allow the propaganda of world leaders to influence how we think of each other and treat each other. That we all have something to contribute and need each other to survive, regardless of the differences in culture, language, or religion. Basically the song is appealing to the masses, stating that the masses can come together and suprise the elitist of this world that have wayyyyy too much influence on political agenda
